The beloved Jacksonville Coffeehouse and Roastery officially expanded into San Marco today when it opened its doors in San Marco.
The new shop is at 1905 Hendricks Avenue and will be open from 7am-7pm this first week and will go to their normal hours of 6:30-10 next Monday.
They are asking that people help them out and not park in the attorney's parking lot next door.
The idea for Bold Bean began with Jay Burnett in 2007. Jay was retired and looking for a hobby on the side, and so he began the pursuit of coffee roasting. His son, Zack, joined him shortly after that, having just graduated from college. They roasted and sold coffee to local restaurants and stores, before finally deciding to open up a coffee shop.
Bold Bean’s first location officially opened in December of 2011. Bold Bean takes their coffee very seriously, putting a large emphasis on the process of coffee making. They source all kinds of different coffee beans, working directly with producers, exporters, and importers from around the world. Then they roast it, and of course, sell it.
They have all sorts of hand-roasted artisanal coffees, with different flavors and boldness. They serve coffee in styles like single cup pour-overs, French pressed, aero pressed, and chemex. They also offer a selection of tap beers and baked goods.
Obviously we've all been fans of Bold Bean since they first opened their doors on Stockton Street. Congratulations to them on their expansion, and congratulations to San Marco for being the next neighborhood to get such an amazing place.
